I had one for the first time in a while, and was reminded just how good this beer is. Pours with a nice, creamy head that sticks around. Not overly carbonated, making it quite drinkable. Lots of malts at the start with a nice, subtle, hop bitterness. Reminds me a little of Anchor Steam. Moderate alcohol content makes this a great session beer. (can't wait til summer)
These guys have proven that in an age of "can you top this" in the hop and alcohol contest, a good , solid beer can be enjoyed. Now that I have found a reliable supplier for this stuff my fridge will always have some on hand. Also a great beer to serve to the casual macro drinker who is turned off by the "mega" brews.

Rated to enjoyment, not to style.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy light copper with a 1" thick, rocky head with great retention. Significant visible carbonation. Lacing goes all down the sides of the glass.
Aroma: Fruity, tropical, grapefruit; malty background. It's those Cascade hops! Smells great, but doesn't seem like a Vienna lager.
Taste: Dry, clean arrival, bitter and clean across mid-palate. Dry, hoppy finish. It could use a little more malt, but it is a lager, not an ale, after all.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, good carbonation.
Overall: Really pleasant. Because this doesn't quite seem like a Vienna lager, what with the strong American hopping, I'm not going to rate it as one (BJCP does not have a category for American Amber Lager - that's a problem...). This is a beer I could come back to again and again. It is a well-structured, balanced, hoppy craft lager. Easily one of my top five beers of all time. Clean, refreshing, and remarkable (but not a Vienna lager).
